On the evening of Oct 1st, my friend and I took this tour with Peter as our guide. He was a resident of DC and his pride, knowledge & enthusiasm of the city shown through in the tour. He answered all our questions and gave us plenty of time to take photos. He also showed enormous patience with some very rude people who had joined the group. Peter was punctual, professional, patient, and personable—a real asset to the tour company and Washington DC. I would highly recommend this evening tour which includes the highlights of DC and gives a different perspective than the daytime tours.

Peter was an awesome tour guide . Highly recommend. This tour is not for people who want to walk through every site (we walked through the Lincoln, Vietnam, and MLK memorials and drove past the others). Visiting at night also meant we didn’t have to deal with the crowds.

GREAT tour of the monuments at night. Tour guide was a local and had a wonderful personality and great knowledge. She was patient with two younger children on the tour answering their questions. I’d highly recommend this particular tour to those who get motion sick on a bus… the open air tour vehicles they use go no faster than 25 mph and the ride is smooth! Highly recommend!!!!

Alex H gave a phenomenal tour. Not only was he well informed, but he was also passionate. You could tell how much he loved what he was doing and it was infectious. This is 100% the way I would recommend seeing the sights to anyone who visits DC in the future.

Would not recommend. Horrible business practices of taking people's money and no communication. Our flight was delayed and we could not make the tour. The tour could not accommodate us on another time or date and refused to speak to us directly. Trip advisor and the local guide both put the onus on each other and we were only offered a future credit, I want my money back not a credit. I will never purchase through trip advisor again. I'd rather deal with the vendor directly. Both places made money and I received nothing in return.

Guide was not only knowledgeable but personable and wanted to meet the needs of the group. He lent a personal perspective to the narrative sharing some of his favorite museums, tips for how to get the best experience and sharing secrets without spoiling the surprise (Lincoln Memorial error, as an example). Night tour was great-even when it poured!!

This was 1k times worth the money spent !! Deejay was the most informative person, not only tour guide, but most informative engaging host I have ever experienced . He was amazingly knowledge about EVERY SINGLE QUESTION I asked . He was so detailed I definitely assumed he was a history teacher . Such an amazing experience to see everything lit up at night . I would def recommend this tour especially if your limited on time and Can’t possibly see everything. At least for this tour you were able to see what each monument and building was.

I only was only in the city for a couple of days for work, but as this was my first time in Washington DC, I wanted a whistle-stop tour of the best bits of the city, and as I only had free time in the evening, this tour was the perfect option. The tour departed at 20:00 and I was joined by a few other travellers in our eco-friendly electric cart. It is certainly a different way of seeing the key monuments in Washington but it was a really fun tour. The guide/driver was fantastic, very informative and shared lots of stories behind each place we passed. They also gave us enough time to stop and take photos at each of the buildings, I go some great shots of the buildings illuminated by lights. An alternative way to see the key sites of the city, which stands them apart from the bog-standard coach or bus tours you normally get.

Our group of nine loved this tour! Bruce and Carl were both fantastic guides. The information on the tour was informative and interesting. We chose an evening tour because we knew the hot summer temperatures in DC can be unbearable. The evening tour allowed us to see all of the monuments lit up at night during the cooler hours of the day. The cart was just an added bonus! Thank you!

Dana was amazing! She is a DC area native with a clear love for the city. She shared a lot of info, was funny and engaging but also allowed us time to look around and absorb the rich history around us. There was a family with us and they loved it too so highly recommend Dana for groups of all ages!

I live in DC and don’t do a lot of “tourist” stuff but I will definitely do this one again!
